bed earlier and i wake up earlier… most days way before my alarm… i also sleep really well lately, and i think its to do with my working out, i go to bed tired. i do make a habit of reading before bed now, so that helps too.
even on days off when i can have a lie in… i tend to plan my day so i get up early and hit the gym, and do errands or study and have breaky… i jsut cant sleep in… once im up im up… i cant remember the last time i had a late lie in… i think its pretty good. and im not relying on herbal sleeping tablets anymore
always get to go to bed early as some nights i get in late from work and only end up getting in bed at 1/2am… but i still wake up at 7/8am most days to fit in gym or college. and i am so used to waking up early now… that even when i have a rest day and a rare day off from college,work and gym, like today… and i tell myself to enjoy a nice lie in the night before… i end up being so used to waking up early… that i still wake up early! and i went to bed late last night. go figure.
but at least i am stil chilling in my bed posting this, tho i have been up for a while :)
adequate sleep each night now, and i wake up early too even before my alarm goes off most days. i do take herbal sleeping tablets which help me to drop off to sleep earlier, id like to eventually stop taking them tho. but for now this is whats working for me.
im greatful for it.
pretty well with this. esp when i have busy long days with college and work and i usually wake up earlier to fit in gym before a long day of work or at the end of day with college.
its all about priorities. for me going to the gym, is a priority, and so is going to bed earlier so i can fit in gym before work.
taking herbal sleeping tablets for the first time last night.
slept like a baby.
overall sleeping is on the up. pleased about that.
i have gone to bed earlier the last few nights, in bed by midnight, i have struggled to sleep these last few nights, as i ahve a horrible cough since last week friday. and its been keeping me up at night, as i have these awful coughing fits at night as well as in the day. keep having to wake up to drink water or get more water. sometimes i jsut get very little sleep at all.
wish it would go already. i have already finished a bottle of cough mixture in 3 days! need to buy more.
i am a bit of an insomniac and have been for years. its something i hate alot… and struggle with. so this is something i want to work on. yesterday evening i had a small success i went to bed at midnight and slept like a baby! the main reason for that was becasue the night before i had gotten very little sleep.. i had stayed up till 330am then finally passed out… then got up at 830am to go to college. anyway at college my energy levels were pretty low… i was super sleepy, regardless of the coffee i drank or even if i went to get some lunch to wake me up. it is not the first time i have been super tired in college. i have been caught sleeping while sitting upright lol! no joking here. dead serious! anyway it totally affects my ability to study sometimes i jsut sit hunched over my book/pc with my head in my hands covering my eyes and i sleep for a few mins incognito cos im sooo shattered. usually when i jsut cant take anymore, i just pack up my stuff and leave and im done for the day cos im too tired. anyway yesterday was one such day… just physically shattered in college. so i left…. then i was on my train… again i passed out on the train cos i was exhausted… managed to wake up in time for my stop… got off… got in the taxi… told the driver where i live… then i nodded off in the taxi for 10 mins agian… woke up in time just before we got to my home. so yesterday was my wake up call that i need to get my sleeping patterns better… cos it affects me pretty bad… the only reason i dont fall asleep at work is cos i am standing and walking circles round the restaurant all day, but i do feel i would be far more alert at work and more on the ball if i got better sleep. this lack of sleep makes a huge impact on me. i am one of those people who needs 8 or more hours, but i dont necessarily give it to myself. its also hard cos i sometimes finish work at 11pm, midnight or sometimes 1am… but in those cases… im jsut gonna have to try and go as soon as possible when i get home from work.
anyway because i went to bed at midnight and got up at 830am this morning… i felt amazing all day… and had no sleepy situations all day! not at college, not on the train on the way to college and back… and not on the taxi home… i was super alert and got loads done. i jsut felt allround better for it. and no doubt the circles under my eyes are a little smaller today (i hope!)
so this something im gonna work on. midnight curfew each night. and on the nights that i come home late from work… just try and get all my nightly stuff done and then climb into bed as soon as possible. this is something that is super important and i want to finally nail it and be a better sleeper and look forward to going to sleep!
really tired this morning… body a bit achy frow weeks workout. overall not so great, mainly due to staying up so late last night. and needless to say gym this morning was not an option.
i was someone who fell asleep easily. to be fair lately havent really even tried going to bed earlier. but at same time i come home late from work sometimes… like tonight midnight… how can i go to bed straight away.
i think its all this internet stuff that keeps me up, and its all silly nonsense. if there was no internet, i would read more and fall asleep not long after.
i need to work on this… but that is nothing new.
i need to not drink coffee at night. that will be hard. love coffee. drink more green tea, but whilst i like green tea, its not the same. but i may have to.
and just maybe try and not surf the net too late into the night anymore. i like 43things… i think its important to come here and work on goals as well as the interaction with others, but stuff like facebook,etc i can do with less of that.
famous last words.
anyway am actually really tired and its 330am now. and i want to wake up at 7am this morning so i can fit in a gym session before work. i am working all day from 1130 to midnight with a hour break. somethign tells me i will prob not make the gym tomoz. what with just being shattered from work and gym and this oh so late night.
seriously… i wish i was one of those people, who want nothing more than to just come home and lay their head on the pillow and fall asleep within 5 mins. that would be awesome.
maybe i need to make myself become that person. get rid of distractions. tell myself i cant wait to get some sleep, look forward to it.and maybe turn my bedroom, into a sleepers paradise or somehting like that. really inviting and cosy and pretty.
need to do something… cos i know sleep is important for so many reasons, and the lack of it does affect me alot.
so ive jsut prob wasted 20 mins typing this when i could have been sleeping. so on that note, im going to get some zzzz’s i can feel i am tired at the momement. good night.
so im in bed. its 3am in the morning. i should be sleeping… i have to be up at 830am to be at work 10am… so what am i doing? sleeping right? you would be wrong!... im updating my goals list here on 43 things on my mobile… and so what do i go and do… i by mistake mark one of my most VIP goals as done… when i havent even started it… so i try and re copy it back into my list on my mobile and that makes even more of a shambles as it creates a new goal without my previous entries… so try again… more shambles… so have now sat up in my bed and turned my laptop on and fixed it to its former glory… so annoying… and here i am and its 337am woohoo! and now im going back to sleep. for real.
